We took a 3 day stay at The Bell and were not dissappointed. Room was generally quite clean although the bathroom was a little tatty, but still perfectly serviceable.
Staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the Spanish gentleman running the breakfast service.
My only complaint is, that due to us staying over the valentines weekend, the main menu was greatly reduced. The valentine menu sounded exquisite, but as with all food establishments over the period, was extremely expensive. We ordered from the non valentine menu and the food was exceptional. I only wish there had been more choice available.
Overall, very happy with our stay.
